Lucky leftovers

Sharing a flat has its fair share of ups and downs – after all, none of us are perfect. One thing I continually enjoy though is the ongoing surprises you find hiding in the fridge that can turn a bowl of leftover mash into a meal of the highest order.

Actually – the mash was my doing, I always make far too much than is necessary as it’s a brilliant all-rounder you can turn into any number of things – topping off shepherd’s or cottage pie, mixed into fishcakes, fried with corned beef and an egg to serve as hash or just shaped into cakes, dipped in beaten egg and flour and fried till crisp. An ideal breakfast or a perfectly wonderful weeknight supper served with a couple of rashers of crisp, smokey bacon and a wobbly poached egg.

Today’s lucky finds were: the end of a chunk of gruyere, a little leftover broccoli, an inch of salami and the potato – mixed together, shaped into cakes and fried they made a lunch I’d be pleased to find on any pub menu, served with a splodge of brown sauce.
